Living with Mental Health Problems

Course Poster

Our great FREE course for carers starts on 13 March, 6.30pm at the Victoria Centre and will take place on subsequent Tuesday evenings for 6 weeks.

The course is for people who care for someone with a mental health problem. It helps to build your understanding and will focus on helping you to cope and helping you communicate better with the person you care for. You’ll be able to share ideas with other carers and provide each other with mutual support.

The course is led by an experienced trainer from our Family Support team and it offers a safe, inviting space for all who attend.

If you would like to attend please contact Neil Sowerby at FDAMH by calling 01324 671608 or emailing Neil Sowerby.
